As per the previous reviewers, this is indeed a wonderful example of ragtime playing and the instrumental combination is perfect! That said, I will state that the impressive 'riffs' you are hearing are coming from the mandolin, not the ukelele.

If you want to hear someone just go nute on a ukelele, you've come to the right place as this guy GOES TO WORK on his ukelele taking the playing to new heights. I initially thought he was playing a banjo. The fact the this was a ukelele makes me that more impressed.
